Hi folks, I'm in the Denver metro and have been piping happily along for like 20 years now? Anyway, I wanted to see what some of the pipe communities on the internet seemed like and this one looks nice. Happy to meet you all!

Glad to have you aboard. CO is such a beautiful place, too bad it's overrun by yuppies, lol. Just kidding. Wife's brother lives in Conifer up around 9500 elevation.

Welcome aboard! I lived in Boulder for years and love it out there. Reckon if you’re a Denver piper you spend plenty of time at Edwards in Englewood—one of my favorite brick and mortars around, learned a lot from Tom when I was getting started.

VP of maintenance for Bombardier at the new Denver airport in 96 to 97. Lived in Aurora but being a biker spent most of my weekends/days off in the mountains. Breckenridge, Steamboat, etc. Fav ride was up through Arapaho national forrest and back down to Granby. Absolutely beautiful riding..

Yay, we're in Aurora! My little family absolutely loves it here. Happy to see some folks who have been in the area, I'm a pretty big Colorado fan these days :)

Oh wow you were here for the automatic baggage handling system meltdown where it just started eating everyone's luggage then?

That granby ride is absolutely incredible, I go up that way a lot to get into the never summers or the back side of rocky mountain national park. We had a big fire up through grand lake last year that was pretty rough, but the landscape is healing nicely and it's always beautiful here.

Yep, I got there just after the move from Stapleton. I remember there was a little mom and pop hotel just outside the south park entrance by Granby, think it was called the Blue Bird Inn. Fun little place and cheap. Looked right down on the lake.
